FACT: One in eight Alasksacans holds a valid pilot's licence.

Watched several of them do some rather amazing manuvers I didn't think possible (successfully that it).

One landed Super Cub on a tree-lined and narrow stretch of river. On his final he gave the Cub hard right alieron and held it reasonably straight with the rudder. Just (and I mean JUST!) he leveled out and the floats touched down soft as a feather.

(For a time it looked like "tip stall" for sure)

"Flying Wild Alaska" was one of my favorite Friday night shows. Watching them land on ice, crabbing sideways in a crosswind was exhilarating to say the least. Maybe more fun on TV than in the plane. There was another, more plane-centric, Alaska flying show too, but I don't recall the name.

Ah, to be young and able again (and live in Alaska)!

At age 75 that's asking too much but the dreams and fascinations of flight will be with me to the very end of my time.
